The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation (CMMI), a think-tank-cum-test bed for new payment models, is getting an overhaul in how it approaches healthcare innovation and payment reform. The Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) plans to back down from the mandate-driven structure of its pilot programs and encourage more input and competition from free enterprise.
Memory care providers have been using the same arsenal of drugs to treat dementia symptoms for years. But the geriatric population has changed a lot in the past decade, calling for deeper medication management strategies, says Joseph Marek, RPh, CGP, director of pharmacy services at CommuniCare Health Services and president of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists, in an educational session at the Fall Memory Care Forum in San Diego.
Providing quality person-centered dementia care starts with providing a new mindset for caregivers and families, says renowned dementia researcher and author John Zeisel, PhD, founder and CEO of Hearthstone Alzheimer Care, in his opening keynote speaker at the Fall Memory Care Forum in San Diego. Zeisel’s 2009 book, I’m Still Here: A New Philosophy of Alzheimer’s Care, has become the cornerstone of a dementia care model by the same name.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
